Hello! In addition to A. crocea, which has been id'd correctly, maybe the pale looking stipe tells us it should be A. crocea var. subnudipes, to be precise.

yes, you must be right!
thanks for ID!

Definitely not A.gemmata which is more straw coloured, usually has white veil remains on cap surface and never has such an obvious volval remain in the ground surrounding the stem base.
Although the stipe looks pale, this is most probably A.crocea - the colour on the inside of the stipe membrane is the same colour as the cap.
